    Sen. Richard Blumenthal: GOP Dials Back the Clock on Progress for Women


    The bills introduced by Representatives Mike Pence and Christopher Smith take an unprecedented step of blocking women's access to the reproductive health care they need and have a right to -- and I will strongly oppose them. These bills seek to overturn years of long-standing legal doctrine and, even worse, they endanger the health of women in this country by attempting to end insurance coverage -- including private coverage -- for all abortions. We cannot allow women's health to be jeopardized by limiting the options that they and their doctors have when it comes to their reproductive health care.

    Them dirty whores better learn what birth control is.

    BTW! They are not opposed to abortions due to Incest, rape or medical reasons. If you're going to post something you need to at least research the bills before touting MSNBC punch lines

    Hey Flayo, It's 2011, there is no reason a woman should get pregnant unless she wants to. Why don't you and others like you, spend the funds on educating women about why they need to take the responsibility for their bodies and to not have unprotected sex with some asswipe guy who will never take responsibility. Teach young women to respect themselves more, the goal should be that no women or girls should ever need an abortion....... period. For any woman with a conscience, the day she has an abortion is the beginning of a lifetime of guilt and doubt, that is what you should be concentrating on if you actually give a shit about women.

    The Hufflepuff Post AGAIN?! You SERIOUSLY need to get your head out of the blogs - and out of your ass - and read some REAL news sources once in a while.

    Let me help you out:

    The New York Times - Breaking News, World News & Multimedia
    Washington Post - Politics, National, World & D.C. Area News and Headlines - washingtonpost.com
    Business & Financial News, Breaking US & International News | Reuters.com
    The Associated Press | The essential global news network

    These are what we call "news sources", as opposed to "opinion blogs". Try them sometime. I realize that there's no hope whatsoever of you being balanced and thoughtful enough to actually RESEARCH any of the things you read, so your outlook will still be skewed, but it is at least possible that you will stop wasting everyone's time and message board space with your undies all in an uproar about some jaundiced PuffnStuff opinion piece. Right now, you're one step away from haranguing us about something you read in the Weekly World News.

    good gawd, so not having the Federal Government use TAXPAYERS monies for women to kill their own children, is now dialing back the clock on women's progress.

    How the hell do you call ABORTIONS PROGRESS.?


    You all want to kill your own kids, GO FRIGGEN PAY FOR IT YOUSELF.

    Blumenthal is one sick SOB and you all who elected him are too.

    So Women killing their offspring is progress in your mind?

    If that's progress, what's your final goal? Total genocide?

    Another clueless fright-winger who doesn't know what she is talking about. Obama already signed an executive order banning ALL tax payer funding for abortions. Second, the bil in question has language in it that limits the rights of women. It says that only incest and forcible rape should be exemptions to the ban on federal funding for abortions. Do you understand what that means? It means, for example, that if a woman is slipped a date rape drug, and is subsequently raped and impregnated, she would have to prove that she was physically forced to have sex. Under the GOP's proposal, simply being drugged and waking up pregnant won't qualify. Being a woman, I'd think that you would be opposed to such draconian measures.

    Pay attention. This isn't about abortion in general. It's about women who use gov't health care subsidies being able to abort after being raped. Do you call limiting the rights of women 'progress'?

    Like I give a shit what some dumbass rightie thinks.

    Most abortions in this country is by choice for use as BIRTHCONTROL.
    that is a sad damn fact, and I guess what you all call, Progress.
    and why should I be forced to pay for others HEALTH CARE? I pay for my own by working.
